Switch off and focus
Thankfully, I've found a solution (in my nana's home of all places): an alarm clock that sits on my bedside table. My phone charges on silent in the kitchen, and now I sleep peacefully — until a random piece of Lego gets shoved up my nose. The third ...

I thanked Apollo that the nightmares of little girls with demon eyes had not made an appearance tonight. I shook my head to get rid of the memory as I switched on the lamp beside my bed with a glance over to my alarm clock. Cyrus had tried to calm me before by saying the bad dreams were nothing more than a workplace hazard. Cyrus awarded me with another crooked smile at the use of my nickname for him. As my keeper, Cyrus was bound to protect me from any spirit who wished to do me harm that I came in contact with as the Sibyl. That was his duty to Apollo just as mine was in using spirit communication to bring him followers. My keeper didn’t argue with me. He didn’t need to remind me that I had no need to fear death. But since I’d broken the ancient mirror used to pass the powers of my position from one girl to another, I knew there was no way I could ever be replaced. No, instead of arguing, Cyrus did the most annoying thing. He went silent. I didn’t know why I couldn’t talk about what I’d seen. And I couldn’t explain my reaction to it. After all, it was just a stupid dream. So I gave in to his silent treatment and started talking. I was drying off the mug when Cyrus came up behind me. He took the dishrag away from me before putting his hands on my shoulders.
The Pebble links to my iPhone via Bluetooth and it vibrates when my phone rings. When it vibrates, I look at the watch face screen and if it is someone I want to talk to, I pull out my phone and talk to them. The screen is a type of monochrome, and it is not as easy to read, as I would like, especially since I wear glasses to read. I also have the Pebble programmed to alert me to text messages with a vibration. I could have it programmed to show me emails, but I get too many and they are too long to read on the tiny screen, so I leave that function on my phone. Another favorite app for my Pebble is to use it as a range finder. This is incredibly handy because not only do I no longer have to pull the range finder out for my friends, and myself but also I don’t have to worry about losing it or breaking it. While the Apple watch is not available as of this moment, I have... But it will only hold a charge for 18 hours at best. Conflicting sources on the Apple community site say the Apple watch can do a fast charge in about 2 hours (to 80% capacity), full charge in about 4 hours, others say if you charge from 30%, you have to wait about 2 hours and 37 minutes for a full...
Beth Sutton is eighteen years old when Dominic Perdue abducts her. Beth never allows herself to forget, however, that her captor has killed another woman. ’m not too fussy about whom to take. Someone young, pliable, whom I can mould into the perfect companion, but other than that, I’ve few criteria. I search, but somehow no woman strikes the right note with me. One day, driven by an impulse I don’t understand, I retrieve from my junk room an old photo, one I’ve not looked at since my father died. ’s the one who’ll help me achieve it. At eighteen, she barely qualifies as a woman. I’ve chosen well. I’ve discerned from our conversations that there’s tension at home. It’ll be my pleasure to teach her. If I break her in right, all she’ll want will be me. ’s formed of me. The successful financial risk-taker with the flash BMW, the man who’ll wine her, dine her, show her a good time. What I have to offer Beth Sutton is more solid, more real, a permanence that’ll force her to grow up. In time, she’ll come to love me, accept the security I’ve given her, thank me for it. Sex isn’t the reason I chose her. A companion, yes, but a mother figure as well, and for that her age is an obvious disadvantage. In my head, she’s my companion first, and then, when she’s earned a few privileges, she can take care of me. Beth being so young.

“stupid loud high pitched annoying things” I mutter as I get out of bed, kicking the pile of broken alarm clock making it finally go silent. I stalk to my dresser, yank it open and pull on an oversized sweater, leggings, and nice warm fluffy sock
